A flaw was found in a change made to path normalization in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.49. An attacker could use a path traversal attack to map URLs to files outside the directories configured by Alias-like directives. If files outside of these directories are not protected by the usual default configuration "require all denied", these requests can succeed. If CGI scripts are also enabled for these aliased pathes, this could allow for remote code execution. This issue is known to be exploited in the wild. This issue only affects Apache 2.4.49 and not earlier versions. The fix in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.50 was found to be incomplete, see CVE-2021-42013.

In brief Hipster beer maker Brewdog has been caught out by a basic, but potentially very expensive, security problem, and the team that discovered it says the Scottish tipple-merchant's response was hardly encouraging.
Research by security shop Pen Test Partners found that the Brewdog mobile app used the same hard-coded API Bearer Token to log in every single customer on their mobiles. This would allow anyone to access and use other people's accounts, including 200,000 "Equity for Punks" s...

The Apache Software Foundation has hurried out a patch to address a pair of HTTP Web Server vulnerabilities, at least one of which is already being actively exploited.
Apache's HTTP Server is widely used, and the vulnerabilities, CVE-2021-41524 and CVE-2021-41773, aren't great. The latter, a path traversal and file disclosure flaw, is particularly problematic.
The former was reported to Apache's security team on 17 September and can be exploited by an external source to DoS a server ...

Crooks are exploiting years-old vulnerabilities to deploy Androxgh0st malware and build a cloud-credential stealing botnet, according to the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
In a joint warning issued on Tuesday, the US government agencies said the Python-scripted malware primarily targets .env files that contain user credentials for AWS, Microsoft Office 365, SendGrid, and Twilio. After scanning and exploiting these stolen credentials, Androxgh0st can al...
